Lassen Family Services and Payless Shoes Launch Shoes 4 Kids Program

Just in time for the holiday season, Payless ShoeSource is once again launching its annual international children’s shoe-donation program, Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids, and has announced its selected charity partners including Lassen Family Services.  The program – which reaches all 50 states – will give more than $1.5 million in free shoes to children of families in need this holiday season.

A group of children served by Lassen Family Services will participate in a shoe-shopping trip at the Payless ShoeSource store here in Susanville. The children will enjoy shopping for and selecting their own pair of free new shoes. For many kids accustomed to used and hand-me-down shoes, this will be their first pair of new shoes.

This is the seventh year of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program. Although studies show that properly fitting shoes are important for children’s health and development, a striking number of children don’t own a pair of shoes that fit. Lassen Family Services and the shoe retailer are working to remedy that here in California.

By helping families who struggle to provide their children with basic essentials on a daily basis, Lassen Family Services, in partnering with the Payless, hopes to relieve some of the stress parents feel during the holidays and bring joy to as many children as possible.

For more information about the ways in which Lassen Family Services is helping our community this holiday season, please visit their website at www.lassenfamilyservices.org or call 530-257-5459.
